Top Nigerian comedian, Seyi Law spoke on the combined photo of the prize money of Big Brother Naija 2017 winner, Efe and a best graduating student from UNN.
The picture got people talking as they now say education is no longer the key to success.
Reacting to the photo on instagram, Seyi Law said Big brother brings profit to its organisers while prize giving is just like a donation.
He however said the best thing is to develop education based entertainment shows as that will encourage hardwork amongst youth.
The comedian wrote ;
“I saw this picture and read a lot of comments on it and I had a good laugh. We don’t seem to realise that BBN is business that brings returns and profit to the organisers while Prize giving is just a CSR for the giving party which is not compulsory by any means.
We talk about how Educational events gets less sponsors and low reward prizes and we blame everybody but ourselves. May I ask when last we watched ” Who wants to be a millionaire”? Oh ho!
If we are truly pained, let’s develop an Education based entertainment show that can guaranty millions of viewership, following and bring in good returns and watch companies eat out of the palms of our hands until then, we will keep crying for nothing.
Abi, we think say the shareholders of the companies won’t want to count profits and improved dividends? Abegi, make I continue with my snoring jor.”
